Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Sikhum­buzo Moyo Se­nior Sports Re­porter

HIGH­LANDERS will to­mor­row pay a visit to the grave of one of its found­ing sons Prince Al­bert Khu­malo in Gwa­temba area, Fi­l­abusi as part of its 90th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions.

First team play­ers will also be part of the en­tourage dur­ing this cul­tural and his­toric visit.

“We leave on Sun­day morning. The board, ex­ec­u­tive mem­bers, some of our sup­port­ers as well as the en­tire first team will be part of this trip. We will have a stopover at Fi­l­abusi cen­tre where we will be hosted by the newly formed Fi­l­abusi Sup­port­ers Chap­ter who will then lead us to the grave of our founder,” said High­landers chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Ndu­miso Gumede.

In Fe­bru­ary this year, a 13-mem­ber del­e­ga­tion went to Gra­ham­stown, South Africa to visit the grave of Prince Rhodes Njube Khu­malo, one of the two found­ing broth­ers.

Among the trav­el­ling party was Gumede, vicechair­man Mod­ern Ng­wenya, who had just been elected into of­fice and the tra­di­tional rep­re­sen­ta­tive duo of Chief Nyanga­zonke of Kezi and a de­scen­dent of King Mzi­likazi Peter Zwide Khu­malo.

High­landers were formed in 1926 by the Khu­malo and were ini­tially called Li­ons Foot­ball Club un­til 1936 when they were re­named Mata­bele­land High­landers Foot­ball Club. The name Mata­bele­land was dropped in 1975.

Booted out of the Chibuku Su­per Cup by Ngezi Plat­inum last week­end, High­landers play host to rel­e­ga­tion threat­ened Tsholot­sho at Bar­bour­fields Sta­dium this af­ter­noon where a win by ei­ther side will nat­u­rally spell doom to the other.
